Global-warming goons stifle data

Climate change orthodoxy has become such a large industry that there are thousands of scientists and journalists whose livelihood depends on it. Their incomes and even their jobs are contingent upon supporting the globalist insistence that there is a climate crisis we can only address by following their prescriptions. It has become a self-fulfilling business model.

Disaster by design

It would be hard to imagine an administration more out of touch with reality than Joe Biden's. Biden and his people have created disasters out of everything they touch. They double down on catastrophic failure, expecting it to change for the better, and when it doesn't, it's because everyone else's expectations were too high. These people can never be wrong because others are the cause of every failure.

Mostly it's about moving forward in a game known to throw careers into reverse every now and again, and McIlroy has not been immune from that.

Nothing superior about far left

The term elites should be banned in reference to those on the political left ("'Show me an elitist, and I'll show you a loser,'" Web, Oct. 18). Who came up with this ridiculously inaccurate label in the first place, and why is it perpetuated? Why are looney liberals called "elites"? What is elite about the inability to think rationally? What is elite about a complete lack of common sense? How does the lack of those essential personal qualities make these people superior to any other? Finally, how can anyone be considered elite for no other reason than their extreme-left politics?

Biden's 'lead touch'

"Biden's Supreme Court commission splits over court-packing proposals" (Web, Oct. 15) is a result we should have seen coming. However, if enlarging the number of SCOTUS justices beyond the nine codified in law in 1869 represents a policy choice truly conceived by our president with his eyes open, ophthalmologists would likely recommend an immediate eye exam.

Food, shelter hardly 'elitist'

The problem with elitists is that they only pal around with other rare-air breathers ("'Show me an elitist, and I'll show you a loser,'" Web, Oct. 18). They scratch each other's backs in a mutual-admiration society where groupthink is the catechism and the naysayer is banished. Elitists comprise a not-so-secret society of the self-satisfied.
